Roasted Cauliflower Nasi Goreng – Indonesian Fried Rice

About eight months ago, Nick welcomed the 40s and life served up a reflux and elevated cholesterol problem. It was like a switch being flipped. One minute everything was fine and the next minute, it felt like a heart attack.

Thai Red Curry Tofu Soup With Sweet Potato Noodles

A good spiralizer can change your life. I have the Paderno brand and it is so easy to noodle the living daylights out of any veggie, that even a four year old can do it. But there is this thing. Not all veggies are four-year old friendly in terms of noodling. There is a reason why most brands show a gorgeous, perfectly primped lady spiralizing zucchinis. And not a frenzied woman, hair a wild mess, struggling to spiralize a sweet potato. Becau... Read More >>

Puffed Brown Rice And Grape Salad Plus Win A Marble Fruit Bowl From Marble Basics

Over the past few years, I have truly gravitated towards eating seasonal. Which means apart from buying from local farms and small organic co-ops, I also adapt more of a seasonal approach to sourcing an ingredient when its season is coming to a close. I either freeze, bottle or can it to keep it longer in my kitchen. In the past I would buy Australian garlic or grapes during their season here. Once their season finished off, I would often...
